|MARES is a Joint Doctoral Programme on Marine Ecosystem Health & Conservation funded through Erasmus Mundus. The programme is offered by a consortium of 24 partners originating from 14 different countries. MARES will focus on six scientific and applied fields, all dealing with the effects of the impact of humans on the natural marine environment.
MARES is funded for 5 years and offers for each of these 5 years approximately 9 fellowships for doctoral researchers. These fellowships are funded for 3 years and always involve at least 2 partners with an obligatory mobility component. The call for applications is open between September and December for fellowships starting at the earliest in September the year after.
MARES offers pre-defined doctoral subjects. You can browse through these in our Subject Catalogue. An applicant indicates the preferred doctoral subject during the application phase.
MARES also offers a Training Programme.
The MARES doctoral programme defines a common foundation upon which all doctoral candidates must build, regardless of the chosen doctoral subject or involved partners. This common foundation can be summarized as :
* The Second MARES Conference will take place between February 1st & 5th 2016 in Olhao, Portugal. Submit your abstract before October 9th 2015
* We are very proud to announce that MARES researchers from the First Edition are graduating between September 2014 & 2015.
